10 Screens For iPhone X - The Most Complete Review Ever

Wednesday, 13 March 2019 6:02:19 PM Australia/Sydney

As a transitional product, iPhone X is a new start of iPhone. It is the first time that Apple adopts a full-screen design and an OLED screen. This big leap also indicates a new beginning for the third-party after-sales industry.

Today, we tested 10 iPhone X screens which are equipped with different display panel solutions, raw materials and IC solutions. So, what about the stability and performance of various qualities? If you don’t have a chance to get samples tested, check the details in this review  for reference to your purchasing.


Based on the results of and feedbacks from customers, this evaluation objectively rated each quality grades. The following are the results.

Original, Super OEM screens feature the best quality, but the price is too expensive and the supply is relatively limited; If you care about the original IC, then we recommend OEM quality. If you care about the original flexible OLED display, we suggest OEM with Copy IC high-end. If you are looking for a cost-effective solution, then HO3 3D in-cell touch solution can be your best choice.

Check more details below you will better understand the difference among these screens.

2.Material Solutions

Display Panel

The display panel can be divided into 2 categories, one is OLED, another one is LCD, including 5 different qualities.

  • Original flexible OLED
  • Copy flexible OLED
  • Copy rigid OLED
  • HO3 3D In-cell touch LCD


  • What is the difference among Flexible OLED, Rigid OLED and LCD?

OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. An OLED display is essentially made up of an organic carbon-based film hooked up to a pair of electrodes. Those electrodes pass a current through the film, causing the individual pixels within it to light up. This latter point is the key difference between OLED and LCD technology. LCD requires an additional backlight component to create an image, whereas the pixels in a self-contained OLED display light up individually. And the simple difference between Flexible OLED and Rigid OLED is that the material is glass or soft film.

  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of OLED screen?

  • What is the difference between TFT LCD and HO3 3D in-cell touch LCD?

Different display panel requires different raw material solutions, which means the structure of iPhone X screen will be affected. We will show you a detailed test review.

IC solutions:

The IC scheme affects the screen stability and display performance. For iPhone X screen with OEM Flexible OLED, original IC and compatible IC are available for choice. Today we tested 3 kinds of compatible IC iPhone X with OEM OLED, and we recommend the OEM with Copy IC high-end due to excellent performance price ratio, check more details in testing review.

Display + touch flex cable solutions:

The display + touch flex cable solutions affect the display and touch stability. Undoubtedly, the original + original solution brings the best stability. And for the solution with copy parts, the stability will be affected largely by various aspects such as the welding process and the parts quality. And the difference can be easily distinguished from the appearance. (see from)

Frame + cover lens + polarizer solutions:

Except for Original quality, the rest quality grades all apply the copy cover and frame. Therefore, the differences from the appearance are not very notable. As for the polarizer solution, if the assembly comes with original flexible OLED display panel, then the polarizer is original. And the view angle of all the quality grades listed are full view.

3.Testing Reviews


Due to the difference in the IC solutions, the touch + display flex cable solutions, and the display panel scheme, there are visible differences in the appearance from different quality iPhone X screens. You can distinguish the different quality screens from the following areas on appearance.

  • IC + Green Flex Cable at the Bottom

  • IC + touch and the display cable

Some quality grades use copy ICs and cable, which can be easily tell from appearance.

  • Upper Notch & Bottom Chin

The size, edge, and curve of the back-side notch are quite different. And when you light up the screen, it’s easy to figure out the difference on the bottom chin among different qualities.

Measurement and Installation

Due to differences in materials, structures, solutions, and processing, the assembly differ in size, thickness, and weight. And it furtherly causes the difference in installation performance. From the above test data, among the quality grades with original flexible OLED panel, the OEM with Copy IC high-end has a better fit that close to the original screens. Among the compatible solutions, HO3 and GX are closer to the original installation performance


  • Color tone & Display Panel Brightness

The display performance is affected by display panel solution, and OLED display is light emitting by each pixel, it derived and controlled by display controller IC, so the IC solution will play important role on display performance.

  • Brightness

  • Viewable Area

With OLED displays, the controller for the display is at the bottom, Apple folded the display, the “bottom” of the display is facing inwards towards the device, such that adding the controller on the bottom doesn’t require a chin for original iPhone X screen.

As shown in the above photo, the lip of the display that comes up is where the controller connects to it, showing that the controller doesn’t need to be at the bottom of the device if the display is folded. But for glass material display, it cannot be folded, so it takes up some room on the bottom of the display, resulting in the chins for all glass material display including rigid OLED, TFT LCD and HO3 3D in-cell touch LCD.

The TFT LCD and HO3 3D in-cell touch LCD require backlight module as light source. so, it is necessary to reserve space for the assemble backlight around the display, resulting in viewable area reduction.

  • View angle

All of them are with full view angle in polarizer testing. That’s the good news for us.

Touch Function

The iPhone X OLED screen applies out-cell technology for the touch function, so as to TFT LCD screen. and HO3 adopts 3D In-cell technology. It combines the liquid crystal, touch sensing elements and 3D touch capacitive sensors into a single structure. The thinner panel makes touch feedback more accurate and ensures outstanding response when the screen is touched by fingers. The integration gives HO3 screens great touch function performance.


For the iOS 12 compatibility, face ID, proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, the test results show no problems. And one thing should be noted that iPhone X will lose true tone once the screen was replaced, even with original screen replacement in iOS 12

Hydrophobic Effect

All quality grades feature great hydrophobicity.

Power Consumption & Temperature (1 hour video play)

As a conclusion, HO3 LCD iPhone X provides the customer a very close Original screen experience. In-cell technology equipped with TDDI IC solution makes the HO3 In-cell screen a qualified OEM alternative. If you wanna save money, and you do not want to make large compromise on quality, HO3 LCD iPhone X is your best choice. Please contact us if you have any needs.

A new LCD screen products — HO3 3D In-cell Touch LCD screen has landed Australian LCD screen market. What is HO3 LCD screen?  What surprises will this new technology bring? Let’s  get more understanding about HO3 3D In-cell Touch LCD technology with The Parts Home, the exclusive distributer of HO3 LCD screens in Australia. 


What is HO3 In-cell touch LCD technology?

Normally for LCD screens, touch sensors are made as separate or discrete layers overlay atop the display in a integration LCD screen (These designs are called “discrete” to emphasize the fact that the touch function exists separately as an overlay on the display.). There are two mainstream touch and display integration technologies in the LCD screen market — Out-cell technology ( used for CMR screens), each motion sensor is made as individual layer in a laminated panel stack-up with LCD display, and in-cell technology (used for OEM and Original Apple screens) , touch sensor is directly integrated into LCD liquid crystal and the whole stack-up are composed by just LCD cell and 3D touch sensor layer. However HO3 3D In-cell touch LCD technology combines the liquid crystal, touch sensing elements and 3D touch capacitive sensor into a single layer, as a result, it reduces the panel’s thickness and weight, featuring an excellent display quality, touch response and precision of touch point.


One Revolution, Five Main Benefits

1. Perfect compatibility with Original Housing

The CMR screens are often blamed failing to fit correctly within the housing since they are much thicker than original screens due to the discrete touch sensor layer. For the HO3 screens, the liquid crystal touching sensor and 3D touch capacitive sensor are combined into only 1 layer, makes the LCD screen even thinner than original screens. This revolution contributes to an advanced compact structure. The frame and glass of HO3 screen can be strictly selected and customized by the size and standard of original screens. As a result, HO3 exhibits as perfect installation performance as original screens.


2. Superb Touch Sensitivity

HO3 3D In-Cell Touch LCD has superb touch performance. The thinner panel makes touch feedback more accurate and ensures outstanding response when the screen is touched by fingers. And the selected raw materials and stringent quality management during production enhance the touch screen’s performance.


3. Outstanding Visibility

Without external sensor layers, HO3 3D In-Cell Touch LCD provides very good picture quality with high transmittance and low reflectivity. A thinner distance from the backlight to the display surface increases the brightness and colour reproduction of the display.


4. Low Power Consumption

Since the touch sensors and LCD are combined into one single layer, without a shield from a discrete touch sensing film, the reflection and refraction of light have been reduced, makes the LCD display of HO3 screen more penetrating and power-effective. HO3 screens exhibit better power efficiency than CMR and OEM screens.


 5. Advanced IDC Features

HO3 3D In-Cell Touch LCD requires only one Integrated Driver Controller IC (IDC) to perform display, touch and 3D touch functions simultaneously, enhancing power efficiency, brightness, colour and contrast.



The excellent performance and efficient power consumption make HO3 3D In-Cell Touch LCD an excellent alternative for original iPhone screens.  For everyone’s interests The Parts Home exclusively launched two HO3 3D In-cell Touch LCD products — HO3 screens for iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7 Plus in Australian market. Ordering HO3 screens from our website, and embracing the revolution of new technology. Find more information about HO3 3D In-Cell Touch LCD on www.thepartshome.au and feel free to contact the Australian exclusive distribution of HO3 products, The Parts Home, for more information about HO3 screens.
